Is it really ok to wear black to a wedding?

Please reassure that it is ok to wear black to a wedding. I am going to one tomorrow and having been talked out of wearing a boring Boden wrap dress I am now planning to wear a black heavy jersey sundress style dress with blue beading under the bust and a blue pashmina to brighten it up a bit. Sure it's not a no no?

no its fine - Many people wear black to weddings - besides you have blue on it too - don't worry - have a fab day

Think it sounds fine.

Absolutely fine as long as you brighten it up with something.

especially with a bit of colour

I wore a black dress to a wedding once. I had a gold pashmina. Agree with others that it is fine with a bit if bright colour too

I agree - black at weddings is fine. I wore black and white to the last wedding I went to

Have fun smile

I have a lovely black dress with white spots I've worn to lots of weddings. Never felt awkward. All black might be a bit strange, but your combo sounds lovely.

I've worn black twice, (with a bit a white).

Made it myself [proud emoticon].

Back from the wedding and had a lovely time, black was no an issue because almost all the ladies were in black! (It was a small wedding admittedly)And there I was thinking that I might stand out grin

Black is fine for weddings - my bridesmaids were in black and they looked fantastic!
